All my life you're haunting me/I loved you so

Bacon Candy!

Yeah, that's right. Bacon candy!
I mean come on!

Did a tiny bit of drool just mix with repulsion in yr mouth?
Finn and I have been working on recipes from
Kids Cook 1-2-3 by Rozanne Gold
and he has been dying to make bacon candy!

From what I gather this may be a Southern thing, but this Yankee loves it.
I think it would be great with eggs and pancakes or even some meat and beans.
It made the house smell like a Yankee frickin candle and as I type this
I am overcome by the sensations of Autumn and leaves and scarecrows and such.
The spice blend rocks.

You need bacon, confectioner's sugar, and a five spice blend ( clove, ginger, pepper, cinnamon, and coriander)
sprinkle it on bacon- roast about 15 mins/drain fat/roast till crisp.
Eat and feel a bit sick but deliriously happy.

I cannot believe I ate this after going with My friend Michelle to this last night
where I consumed well over 5,000 calories in an hour and a half.
I was so moved last night by the March of Dimes.
I will do the walk next year. I swear.

Get me delivered to yr email xo

I've been to that event in DC. I got overly enthusiastic and bid $200 on a weekend stay at the Loews Hotel in Quebec City. I had been once before with Chris and we always wanted to go back. Of course, I was 7 months pregnant with my first son when I placed that bid, so we planned to use it the following year when he could come with us. Then I got pregnant with the twins. Needless to say - it's been almost four years, and we have not been back to Quebec City. Nice donation though.

And you couln't PAY ME to eat bacon candy. You should see the face I'm making as I write this.

When I first saw that photo before reading the post, I instantly thought it looked like bacon, but then I said to myself, "Don't be an idiot. It's just a kid's finger-painting." But first impressions...
